A Catch-Up Day with Beautiful Weather in Paris
Bonjour mes amis,
Yesterday was incredibly beautiful without a cloud in the sky, a nice breeze, and slightly cooler temps, all in preparation for the heat surge on Monday and Tuesday.
Natalie and Lisa were at DisneyLand Paris, and we have yet to get a full report. Hopefully, no news was good news. Bernie and I had a slow, easy morning, just relaxing a little. We ate lunch in the apartment, took the bus to our Monoprix that we know and love, thinking it would be back to normal after a major renovation. It was not yet in tip-top shape and nothing was where it used to be. C’est la vie and the theme of this trip so far!!! We got a few more basics, went to a different grocery store and caught the conclusion of a wedding at the beautiful Église St. Paul/St. Louis. We waited for the bride to exit the church, but alas, Bus 96 appeared and we had to hop on with our four bags of groceries. No need for a gym membership over here in Paris. Plenty of weight-lifting in daily life.
About 4:30, we went out for a discovery stroll in our new area to get our bearings and enjoyed it very much. We were engulfed in a manifestation for peace in Ukraine and also snapped a few dogs sitting at cafes.
Natalie is quite the photographer and caught these lovely photos night before last at sunset on the Seine.
Tomorrow is the Bastille Sunday market and then Montmartre!!
To those in Huntsville, we were saddened to hear about the accidental death of Ray Jones. Love and prayers to his family!

Just a quick question: where is your new apartment? Which arrondissement? I am on the lookout for a place. Thx!

Our apartment is 11 Boulevard du Temple in the 3rd arrondissement which is Le Marais.

Sounds like you and Bernie are adjusting to your new base for this trip and finding your way around. Loved the wedding guest photos and the puppy dogs. Cheers to those keeping the crisis in the Ukraine in the forefront. Tomorrow sounds like a wonderful day, however I am certain the heat will be a challenge. Take care.

We’ve always enjoyed Bernie’s photos, but Natalie’s additions are a great bonus. Wonder what the bride was wearing!

Lovely night shots! I was always too tired to stay up late for pictures like that!
When will you tell us why you can’t use the elevator down??
July 17, 2022 @ 8:08 pm
We have no idea why the elevator is locked for going down. Really strange!
